Gender Studies Minor

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Majors and Programs

The gender studies minor explores how conceptions of gender shape our perceptions, interactions and institutions in ways that redound to the benefit and detriment of various social groups. It teaches critical methods of inquiry and promotes habits of reflection that lead to transformative engagement with contemporary societies. It focuses special attention on the capacities of religious traditions-and of Christianity in particular-both to underwrite and to challenge our gendered orderings of the world. Sociology majors may complete a concentration in gender studies with courses overlapping major requirements. Contact Dr. Lauren Barthold, Department of Philosophy.
